Marposs has announced the acquisition of Jenoptik’s (Jena, Germany) non-optical process measuring technology business for grinding machines, formerly known as Movomatic.
With this acquisition, Marposs takes over the facilities, management and employees at the main site in Peseux, Switzerland, as well as in Ratingen and Ludwigsburg, Germany, ensuring continuity of service and support levels.
Marposs plans to bring the Movomatic brand back to the market, after it was abandoned following its integration into Jenoptik. For the time being, dedicated market strategies will be maintained with an autonomous approach to the respective customers. Possible integration between the product lines, such as combining Movomatic measuring solutions with Marposs wheel balancing systems and sensors, will be evaluated for possible future technical integration.
This acquisition, in combination with Marposs’ expertise in the field of high precision measuring and control solutions for industrial production, expands the Marposs market presence and portfolio of offerings for its customers.
